John mccloud coached a treatment papers, and he ill fated AVL formed by apes sacristy, and a guy to hired him for the Cleveland pipers was George Steinbrenner. So Don MacLeod was the first, but that was a league that lasted a year and a half. And it was a challenge to the NBA that failed. But Russell became the first existing prominent major sports league black coach NFL, Major League Baseball. And I want to make sure that we set the record straight for John mccloud. Pioneer basketball history. And give George Steinbrenner credit, frankly, one of the, but when red tired Russ, it was the first time one of the major sports leagues. Right. Of any kind had hired a black person. And I didn't even hesitate. You know, it was a very obvious thing and a logical thing. And Russ and the first year out they don't win. And then they went to and Russ was the coach. I mean, it wasn't like red was pulling the strings. Trust me on that. No, no, no, no, no. It was Russell street and Russell Rea neck right next to you. Did he have to coach that? I mean, obviously you had a presence, but they had been together and it was sort of a Celtic way. Yeah, good veteran team. And what good enough in 67, that they weren't 68, as I said, I'll get Philly credit for kind of him being hurt, but you got veterans. How much that's coming into his prime.

"They figure out how to rig the salary cap their way and they figured out the system. And then over in the late 90s into 2000s, now they've kind of morphed into whatever this is, which is really been the same situation now for two plus decades, where it's like, everybody talks about them all the time. They haven't even made have you made an NFC title game since 1995. I don't think you have. It's been a long time. No. You have this new state of the art stadium. You have one of the most powerful owners. You're just in the mix and all these different ways. And then it all culminates in these playoff games where everybody's experienced and at the same time wondering, wow, what a fucking messed up franchise. This is. I don't know what you're out is because it's not like just is going to sell out the roof. I was thinking that I had the guy. I think you hired Brian Flores. Just really good. I was wildly impressed by him as the dolphins coach. You bring him in. He's a real coach. And, you know, he'll fight with Jerry a little, but maybe that's what you need. Maybe need like a Billy Barton George Steinbrenner. You need like the coach who's not gonna take shit who's not looking like a Patsy. He's not freaking Harvey Oswald. It bones me out because I think the thing you added or could have added to they've now playing a division that sucks. It was handled for so many years, all those errors you talked about. And so many great and important rivalries and there's nothing like that anymore. And whereas these other three teams are trying to find their footing, that one should be dominating. Well, I don't know what you want to do with all that information. You're going to make another music box out of it. I just think you need you need to hire somebody to kick us. It's a kick ass GM or a kick ass coach. But the whole thing of Jerry being in charge everything, and how old is the guy now? He's in his mid 70s. Yeah. Well, yeah, his 70th was like three years ago. Yep. Yeah. And they definitely blew the Macarthur. I don't think they're doing it though. Honestly, I think they as long as he's around. They're going to have a higher like this. Well, we're going to be here a year from now, and you're going to have that sad book on your face. All right, let's talk about the let's do that.

I thought, he said on this bleeping Friday That was funky Friday, right? Yes. So when I watched the video and make sure Friday, but it's close. Here's the biggest question. I want to know. Did the Patriots cut you? Because they didn't want you Or did you ask for your release? Right? Cam has to let us know that on Friday There's a belief that the Patriots lost, trusting Cam because he had to miss those five days. Or maybe Bill went to Cam said Mac was the better quarterback. Mac won the job and then can politely asked for his release of the Patriots. Granted it is that the number one thing that he has to address on that. I'm on the of the funky Friday instagram live. I would agree. What happened. Why you're not a patriot, because no one saw this coming. Yeah, I'm with him getting cut as an option. Does Kim get signed somewhere this year? Well, obviously, I'm going to go on a limb here and say, Not before week one. Oh, yeah, that's that's real big of you, which were less than 24 hours away from week one. I would say no. I think because of injuries. Someone will give him an opportunity this year, but I don't think there's much left in the tank. But it's amazing. We talked to a bunch of people. That still believe in camp. I love what Kim did in 2015. I was a fan of Cam Newton. I no problem the Patriots bringing him in last year. I thought he's gonna be back this year. I said that we were doing our cubic carousel prediction. I don't get those. Oh, Why people still believe that Cam has some of that resemblance of 2015 left, and I'm like, Have you watched in the last two or three years? So I can't really count down came. I'm not saying it was the right move to get rid of him. But I want to know why. What's his understanding on why he was released by the Patriots. And if he wanted it, all right, you got to respect that. But if he didn't, then it kind of tells us everything that bill who praised him out of the wazoo. Lost trust in him.

"And flipped the scrip fast. Go back to the that. Good scorcher team. I don't know how you do that with the drop of a hat next day. Day game a after you just got taking two of three at home against the baltimore orioles. Taiwan's just got a pitch very well. Bought a old cliche goes it starts with the the guy in the mount starts with the starting pitcher because guess what this start that gives them some breathing room to tha but if tyron again can't get through the fifth inning which he has been unable to do as less to starts out how the how the heck are they're going to get five innings out of this bullpen. This team they four wins in a row this team. I'm talking about the baltimore the baltimore. I'm talking about the toronto blue jays. They're scary team right now. I've said they were scared since spring training but right now this this team scares the shit out of me Looking at this more. They're scaring me even more because they have some They got a chip on their shoulder. A little bit of revenge from the the last series against the yankees yankees just got their ass kicked by the blue jays. Basically taking a two or three. They're in a vulnerable position. This is a young team hungry team at at new york in the bronx that want to make a mark these types of kids that wanna that want to embarrass you when possible so not feeling good about that. I'm not feeling good about that. There's a lot of a lot of a motivation for them. They're playing well. They see the yankees in their sights. What are we up. Four games four and a half on on toronto a half hour and a half with four to play like that that they have another series for to play in this series. That's that's a. That's a very clean thing to do when you're when you're when you're looking at the blue jays for some Bolton board material. Yeah all right little little half episode on memorial day as labor day weekend labor day. Monday you guys are enjoying the holiday and the weekend and scott nice so there's a busy week for the yankees just like you said the four games but also we have the jeeter hall of fame speech coming up this week so you and i are going to do an episode after we hear that and react. I i am. I kind of have high expectations for it full. Well knowing i'm going to be let down because eaters. Just going to be very jittery. I think in. I don't think we're gonna get it. He's opened up more. He's definitely opened up more and started talking about certain things. So maybe this is know. I think he started doing that with the player's tribune. When when that whole thing started that was what the year after he retired. And then you know he's gotten he has kids now so there's a lot more of emotions that are like swirling in this man's brain. We'll see how the composure has changed. And how he can do it because this is gonna hit. The nostalgia button really hard for everybody. There's going to be a lot of people there watching him. You know supporting him and He's not going to be able to do this by just like staring out at a screen. There's been a whole bunch of things right. The the voicemails. What he's going to do. I think is go back to the stories and then turn it on people. And that's how he gets through those moments rather than like all being him he'll turn and he'll he'll talk about the impact and he'll talk about the things that certain people did for him and then turned it into like a little bit of story joke. And then he'll deflect in that way he's gonna he's gonna hill definitely have some self deprecating In in the speech over under time on the speech he put. What's an average speech. I don't know what an average i don't know what was griffin minutes. I'd say five minutes. I'd say over the five minutes. I take over five minutes. If if if i were to guess it would be around ten but i don't even know if i'm closing long. I think that might be long. I feel like i long career long career. There's a lot of people can say nice things about him. He's got a lot of people have thanked. There's a lot of things that went on the kid from kalamazoo all the way through all this championships with the yankees. And now he's started a whole other baseball life with with the marlins like he's got a lot how much if any of the speech will have the marlins in it. I think if anything it will it will tie help tie it to just how baseball is continuing and how he learned everything from the organization and is applying that. I don't even think i'll say the name. I don't think. I don't think he'll say that. Name florida marlins new organization or no. I think he'll just say influence how. I have continued my baseball career. Or something. like that. like he'll just allude to it but not say it. Does he mention. He'll go back into the yankee ways like in immediately he obviously will think george steinbrenner. Joe torry probably joe girardi as well since he did win. Stick michael i bet. Stick michael shout here. Does buck showalter get a a mention now. I mentioned obviously his teammates. Kasahda pettitte mariano. Those are the core for bernie hopefully gets a gets a mention bernie's part of the core. Yes she's part of the queen's not the core four that was a marketing thing that that was a very very williams. Yeah why am. I buy completely missing. This guy's name steiner sports. That was that was a steiner sports thing who who who mark them the core for the core five. I don't care what anybody says. Does a rod get a mention. No very strategically not. So because it's like obviously you the glory days without a-rod and then the one i think he's gonna talk a lot about his parents. I think he's gonna talk a lot about apparently he may he may bring it back to the two thousand and one world series and in that moment like just because i getting drafted and stuff actually. If you guys didn't listen. I did a history episode on how jeeter fell to the yankees at number five not really following but like he felt number six because it was called the jeeter five so i believe five players were taken ahead of derek jeter and just like how that draft process went to go. Check that out. We should probably re release some of the jeeter any. Yeah the jeter jeeter centrica histories. We'll re post the jeeter one on wednesday morning the day of the speech. That was the only jeeter centric one. I think that i did. But yeah i mean he'll he'll definitely thank all of those people. I don't think it gets mentioned either. But it's interesting that does he. He'll i think he'll. He'll talk about his five championships. Maybe in general does he like talk about specifics. From those teams or anything. I'm not sure. I think the championships one or an opportunity to talk about the his teammates. And all those things coming up. But i also think the postseason and the moment and that's where i think potentially there will be some discussion..

And they said you guys got a promoted social media wise because it's digital this was an offshoot of digital and now everybody was all excited about all this and now we're feeling the pressure and we have nothing to do with it because the shipping is just all cockpit. So you can't ship out the summer shirts on august ninth and these shirts. Also the hawaiian one's the bucket. Capture like you know by this and the boat party and that could be part of it too like they was all part of this whole summer thing and people are going to get.

We got a team could be supply chain issue in a car somewhere that we were on a zoom. Yeah we'll deal with things and you know i mean like there's someone from our company that works with the merch guy but the merge guys not our companies emerged guy could be an. Everything's not getting a merch delivered to how can you be emerge guy bus but and you hear so many things that go their supply chain issues with all these different industries. Could this be one of those issues. I don't aren't so bad supply chain issues with customers. We have not had supply chain issues. Now as we're having this conversation. I'm updates now. Okay what are you getting. Why would i begin. Rip rip brought it up. I also heard that there was a nationwide tie dye shortage. Get the hell out. I swear begged such the hot new thing for summer.

Put the put a movie on the ice on the in the it was all iced. After that giradi moment. I mean that place. I was just rocking that night. Rock and i mean they. They lost the first two to one. The next three. I stayed till saturday. Night shooting exteriors. It was a week. Be a week. And i'm never forget what the other day you know what killed me when a guy tagged up on a fly ball to i. I said this look for. Oh it was devas- who came home. Yeah on a fly ball. I said i have had this is it. It doesn't get any worse to tell you man this is. It's a five alarm fire right now for the yankee. No question in my mind that they're a team that strikes out way too much into way too many double plays. That's put the ball in play nearly enough. And i don't know how that's gonna turn around unless the entire team has an epiphany and can start actually hitting can you know they don't have anybody from the left side. Nobody that don't have anybody after cole. I mean you know montgomery and tyrone and whatever you. I'm saying they don't like you know the yankees used to be two three forty. They don't have that those guys anymore tonight. I never thought. I'd be wondering where tanaka is You know and and then when it all comes down to it. I'll be very honest with you. You know you mentioned steinbrenner's name and and he was the bane of of my world mattingly. Who's on tomorrow's show. I mean don what what what steinbrenner did to mattingly. I wanted him out and dot when when steinbrenner went away when the yankees finally were able to. Just turn a stick. Michael bob watson and let them do their thing right and cash moves learning at their side. And that's when the yankees with tori. Put it all together for all those years and for me. You know i'm i. I never thought i would say this. They need somebody like steinbrenner back kick. Somebody's ass they do that. You know not. Every team needs that. But i like what happened this weekend would be of you know right now just like okay. We'll see what happens tonight. Because we'll see somebody's exit velocity will take care of it and the spin rate. Get where it needs to be right. And that's the way it sort of seems to be right now dave. Dave accepted being a mediocre baseball team and the team. But we believe in them. And i'm like it's not working man. It's now it's not gonna change. No miracles are going to happen. I realize it now. I'm not gonna get excited. I don't get they try to suck me in and try to get me up in the air because they're always gonna let me down so i'm not buying it no more the rest of the season are you search or you're not watching watching watching watching but don't believe that you know that's that's that's not really true all right. Well let's take a break. We'll come back and we'll finish the show or the you're wearing a fantastic shirt. Looks like it's a small hawaiian shirt.

"I were in there were literally at you know at six. Am there would be this smell of bacon coming from the microwave in the kitchen. And it was the The two girls. Who were his producers diane diana and diana and her sister and i can't remember what her sister's name was but it was diana and they were microwaving up g gordon liddy bacon every morning remembering. It's it smelled up the entire The entire offices and studios. It wasn't a bad smell. And and there was the occasional conversation with g. Gordon liddy in the kitchen and he couldn't have been more pleasant could have been a nicer guy. Could not have been a nicer guy. Like one of the most fearsome individualistic over read about in american history. And he was just saw. And i i think you and i would like occasionally start. Firing some watergate related questions at him. And he's i good question. Good question kevin. I gotta get back to the studio by the way. The bacon smell much better than the time when mike. Kelly decided he'd up seafood chowder. Oh god and everyone just yelled like. Don't ever do this again. Man you just ruin the entire radio station. Didn't liddy gist. I did just pass away. It was just like two months ago. Right yeah it was very recent and and you know we talked about on antonio show and it was is that we had this weird opportunity. Interact with them. Antonio's said listen. He was a lovely guy. He was lovely. He could not have been nicer and it was. It was a bizarre chapter in my broadcast history. Sort of have interactions with this guy. But again you know you never know who who. You're going to run into this kind of career. And he was just a. Yeah and you know when we did move to rockville. We didn't want to move to rockville. That place in silver spring was away from everybody else incorporate we basically had our own set up there. It was so easy to get in and out of now. Rockville ended up being great. Too but I remember tony's resistance to rockville. And i'm like it's gonna be fine By the way the other thing about mark to Not only was was he. Great as nigel and i very much do remember as you were creating this character in those early days and you know sort of the debates that you were having about you know what it was going to be what his name was going to be and how much you should do. It and i'll i remember is. Just be encouraging. I'm like it's phenomenal. You just gotta you just gotta do it. And and mark is it has been A stand up comic Some of you know that in some of you seen him and he's great but the other thing that i wanted to say to you and this is so true while mark was definitely A in acquired taste for adults and really again. The reason being mark is one of these people. And i have several friends that are this way that they just don't wanna waste any time with people that they don't feel like they should waste time with that. That is partly you and your personality which is fine I remember those early days saying basically. Fuck him You know. I don't i don't really care. But and then somehow we ended up becoming friends but what mark was phenomenal doing is he was great with young people. And all of the interns that came through nine eighty over the years including by the way my son and a lot of sons and daughters of friends of mine remember we had basically the sheehan interns for about three straight summers always great Mark could not have been better with young people and still to this day. There are friends of my son who will ask house mark doing And and because you are great with young people in you really. I don't think it was You certainly didn't get paid Any more for for doing it but for all intents and purposes hugh her the managing the intern program at least those that were in during our portion of the day. Well it was. It was always. It's always fun to shape a young mind in that and show them. Hey this is the right way to do things you know. This is you know. Let me get your mind working right about how you can cover a show and how you prepare for show and you know i. It's great to see the eagerness and the anticipation from from the kids. Always a great thrill for me and you always brought it. We didn't always have great kids. You know couple that were were not real interested in the internship. No and i remember very specifically. I'm not gonna name names a year where it was december seventh and i asked these two interns. What's the significance of that day. Neither one of them got it very angry. You brought through always drift we. We hit him with a lot of dates like The significance of of july fourteenth. Does anybody have any idea what the significant and they wouldn't even have any clue Anyway feeling a lot of our listeners. Don't understand the significance of that data either but that may be a trip I making This summer for a few days really back to old pal which my wife loves a lot. And i said can we just go somewhere and i can be on the beach and play golf. No we have to go. You know where we can see museums and cathedrals At i don't know why. I'm past that point of doing out on vacation. I'm not interested in that. As much as i and i wasn't never i was sort of interest i was the guy that wasn't interested in that i would get interested when i got to the museum row and i was like oh that was really cool but i would prefer on vacation to play golf or beach. Yeah you want to recharge the batteries from do either. But i was. I've never been to france and i love. I mean there's so many things that you and the vice president vice-president apparently which she apparently has not been to europe which i found is a surprise. I've been to england once. But i've never guess france and you're from england. I well technically. I am from england. Yes from birmingham. I think but yeah no. Every time i watch the french open over roland garros. And i'm like man i gotta get over there and see i got. You've been to see wimbledon. I'm if you've been to see rolling. And no i've seen i've seen the venue but i've never been there for the actual open itself by the way is a quick aside because i don't wanna forget this because you'll be able to win a way in on this as well. Tommy and i were in this big argument yesterday on the podcast. He's like the french opens the equivalent of the pga. No it's not it's not it is you know maybe third but for for europeans and a lot of the players it's second behind wimbledon and maybe even first for the klay quarters but it is a. It's a big time turnover. But but yeah these are things we've talked about so many times you have to get over to the. That's where you have to go Mark is definitely a historian on many fronts. I mean you were a european history. Major right Well classics classical civilization major. Okay let's split study all european history. I mean that's i've always had a passion for it and the more i studied the for the further back i would go now. I'm into ancient egypt's oh boy fascinated with i got a whole egypt's and drip. I'm trying to plan as well all right. Well i'm going to have to get up to snuff on that and then we can have a conversation about that I do before we get to your podcast. And what you're doing with the usda working with tony the years like is there a show or shows that stand out more than any others over the years. You know what there is one show. I recall in particular. Well does in a couple of moments first of all tony. Tony's unscripted opens on big days. When something big would happen you know i i. And i'm thinking specifically of when george steinbrenner passed and we were doing the show from his beach house. And i think it just happened and i said who do you want me to call on this..
"george steinbrenner" Discussed on Celtics Lab Podcast
"But also a criticism of him from some executive around the league was just that The way that they would always get linked to a certain player and they almost did this. It love people the wrong way you know when the isaiah thomas straight went down Obviously he wasn't a hundred percent. So i think people were leery of trading danny de was pretty good at making drains and i think that After a while people just got nervous in a of the elements him because he was pretty much coming out on top and a lot of those deals You know. I know some may say well. He lost kyri loss ordered and hayward and free agency but Cairo wanted to come home. I i don't know how much you could fault age on that. I mean i don't know if necessarily worked out as well as both sides thought And you know hayward got a huge contract that you can't pass up that money. I thought overall he did a good job but dolls. Were some of the criticisms either from executives around the league mixed then what My own deutsche. Just the as far as quote on quote worst monitoring window. I don't think There were that many i am find. You agree but attuned alexander. Justin thank alex. Yeah there's one moment that kind of stood out to me and it's tough to say that it's the worst moment of angels tenure but it was a pretty dramatic moment in terms of Ultimately changing the future what the celtics were going to be. That was when ray. Allen walked in free agency in a ray was kind of the third guy behind gardenet and pierce for a lot about time and with rondo a guy that he apparently did not like all that much report he believed emerging as another star to see. Ray walk to the archrival. The team. that You know every boston celtics fan hated with just such a burning passion miami. He was bad. That was tough because it signaled both the kind of departure of ray to a rival in and of itself being bad and also just the end of the big three era. That was to come in the next couple of years. Obviously you know. Garnett appears and rondo tried their best and had a decent run after that for a little bit but to lose ray particularly to miami and and in addition you know for by all accounts not a significant salary bump or anything like that That that was a tough killed. Swallow for sure for me. It's going to be pretty on brand. It's losing gordon hayward in free agency i understand losing irving i would have made the same bet myself. I i understand losing al. I might have made that. I was pretty convinced we were going to be able to bring him back in team. Friendly deal before fairly blew that up however hayward hayward the writing was on the wall there were really good arguments for running it back and trying to get the title. But i didn't feel that that team was really going to compete for a title. Considering all the the asterisk things that were going on in the orlando police and there were some very good reasons not to to linger on. Hang onto and this is why i actually was so supportive of the nets. Trade was because this ford thinking in tallahassee seems to have just disappeared and it left us in a situation where the celtics had to scramble on the free agency market by the time they were able to do something once. It became clear that he was not coming back. And that really in a lotta ways. Set a lot of the negative aspects of la paz now has to deal with emotion. Yeah i think it's a really great point is perhaps a theme of the dineage risking proactive. I think a fan. I would pick my worst moment was the kendrick perkins straight Because it tore up a friendship between perkins Boo culture but Typical dineage getting ahead of the curve. And i guess justin kind your being the magic ran out or the ethos ran out and at the tail end of this era. We didn't really see that in practice but without thinking mind. This is proactive approach. Mike let me ask you this. Was this the right time. Was this the right move I think for. Danny green is at a point where he had done as much as you. Can you know. I don't know if they're going to be able to move really kemba walker for example. I think if you were going to do that you know it's almost like you have to get like a kristaps porzingis back a guy similar value who i and the viewers can't see your reaction but i could but like for example like that. That is something that has been floated around. You know. that's another thing when you're talking to people around the league and people like to slow things out there a lot in those types of things but You know like they had always liked porzingas from from years ago but That said i think for danny. He felt there was time and i understood in terms of his health and morning to take a step back. I thought authority did like i said a pretty great job overall. I think he could have continued. I don't think like his mind's slip. I don't think he did the job. That bad i think took a step back. They just maybe. I wanna like seemed danny. Push a little bit more of those ships in in the center of the table as far as brad. Stevens goes You know. I think some people would like to see the celtics. Maybe try to go after mortgage proven guy and throw just bag at a sam pressed the or maybe try to acquire him or someone. That's done it before and you're looking at and and what's interesting about that. Sam is obviously had experience with guys like Durant or in west but when they were younger. And you've got to stars to all star players jayson tatum and jaylen brown. And you're trying to build the organization around and while had some luxury tax implications that he had to worry about in oklahoma city that affected you know james harden straight and with ownership and things like that if a time. Don't think you would have those problems in boston. So i kind of be intrigued. See what he would do with an open war chest and Less financial concern. You know it's almost like being like the george steinbrenner the yankees back in the day but As far as what..
Pakistan funds fact or opinion
"There's a half of our country right now that's living in a air quotes, reality that doesn't exist. Not kidding. This isn't a comic book. It's not a joke. It's a real problem. We have a Country of three constitutional Republic of 330 million people, plus And in order to make serious decisions about serious things. Just go down the list taxes, school health care, abortion guns, the Constitution, civil liberties, whatever that may be, in order to make serious decisions seriously. People like the citizens of the Constitutional Republic largely are outside of the radical left rape. We have to be able to make decisions. And in order to reach decisions, we should agree on a collective set of facts, not opinions. Okay, If you think we should support the government of Pakistan, more or less is an opinion. However, the amount of money say dish using this example in foreign policy, because it's an easy one. However, the amount of money we give to the government of Pakistan is a fact that is not an opinion. Now. I get it for the listening audience. You're like, Okay, that makes sense, Stan. But to the radical left, they don't seem to understand the difference between the two. You can say to you How? Listen, I don't think we should support. You know Pakistan with this amount of money, But the amount is a fact you agreeing with the amount we should give is an opinion. So how is it that we have half of America or close to it? That hated Donald Trump can't stand conservatives. How is it that they've come to exist in come to exist in reality where they don't have a grasp of what a fact is anymore? Folks, it's happening right now. Now we played this yesterday and bringing me not to pile on Brian Stelter, but he it's any easy target the pile, of course of CNN, but he has a show called Unreliable sources reliable. So when you get to him on CNN, and he was just the opening segment we covered yesterday, 11 seconds off Where Brian Stelter hilariously it's CNN says it's US conservatives in the listening on each other. That where the part where the problem we live in an alternate reality and thank God there's a media to set it straight. Check this out. You said the state of American Democracy is well, it's even worse than you think. So how should the reality based press cover an alternative reality? GOP? Right, And that's not a joke. He actually said that this is the same guy again who promoted the collusion hoax. The Russian bounty hoax. The China was a the Chinese, you know, coronavirus that emanated from China was it had to be naturally current couldn't have been man made. I mean, all these hoaxes were promoted by CNN, MSNBC and networks like Brian Stelter resides on now. They were all proven false. So how is it that they live in a reality? That's not real. And how is it that they're just quote discovering things that both you and I and the listening audience knew the entire time the conservatives out there. How does this alternate reality? Remember Bizarro Superman World's gonna come up a lot. I was a big comic book fan as a kid member Bizarro Superman. Everything was upside down backwards. Bizarro Superman was super ugly. How is it that the modern liberal lives in Bizarro Superman land? How is that? How was it that they live in The George Costanza Seinfeld episode. Remember that episode when Costanza does everything backwards and imagines and magically works out for him? This is the Seinfeld episode, like a stance that does everything backwards. Costanza. Stelter hadn't even done that, but it doesn't work out for them ever. He curses out George Steinbrenner and he gets fired, not a promotion. How is it that they've come to live in this alternate reality? Well, let's go to group one. First that contributes to this alternate reality they live in and why they believe things that aren't true. And why believing these things, Ladies and gentlemen, is getting people killed. This is not a joke. People are dying. Because of a reality liberals live in that does not exist. It's fake.

That was the first year. The designated hitter rule was played in the american league. It was the year nolan. Ryan broke sandy. Koufax's record for the number of strikeouts in season. The kansas city royals moved to royals stadium and the yankees were purchased by george steinbrenner and it was the year. Pete rose and willie davis collected their two thousand hits but nothing captured. The attention of america like the mets that year the mets nineteen seventy. Two season was interrupted by the sudden death of their manager. Gil hodges making the nineteen seventy-three season the year to come back and play in the honor of gill and their manager.

"One thing I've noticed with every single one of them. I've been at one time. I bet it three games were no hitter has been pitched One was a perfect game. And the constant in all of those has been how the catcher worked with the picture. And if the picture didn't want to throw something to catch our understood we're not going to force this. The guy knows what's going on better than I do. Even though I'm Behind the plate, so we go to the ninth inning. And the Reds put three runs up in the ninth inning. And it's a long half inning, the top of the ninth. And Miley is sitting on the bench and I think his pitch count at that point was over 100. And he's sitting on the bench and it It was a chilly night. A rainy night in Cleveland last night, and I'm thinking, you know, get one across. Okay, maybe two. But don't prolong this as much as you're going to. You know, it's one of those deals where, Okay, I think that's enough. Let's go. We don't want we want the guy to complete this thing. So that's I'm sitting. You're watching that last night and I wanted what's going on inside of Miley said in the ninth inning. Well, this this this was it. That's what that's funny. When I felt that the most is that you're sitting there. I knew what was going on in the eighth. But 0 to 0. Obviously hats off the police Act threw a great game and and nobody knows what's happening. And then we scratched through across in the night, and it was kind of sewing, playing pretty slow and I don't wanna go throw in the in the hallway because I was pretty tired. I want to waste any bullets, but at the same time I wanted to stay loose, and that's definitely the pressure, sit in and was able to get three pretty quick ones and make it happen. Nine innings. No hits, no runs, one walk. Eight strikeouts 114 pitches, 72 of which were strikes. Was at Yankee Stadium. This would have been in the summer of 1999 for David Cone's perfect game. Never forget that it was Yogi Berra Day They were welcoming Yogi back into the Yankee family after George Steinbrenner and he got into this tiff. David Cone was on the mound, and he was absolutely terrific that day. That was a game. That was a game. That was delayed by rain. Tom Browning's perfect game here in Cincinnati, September the 16th 1988. That was a game that was delayed. I think, 2.5 hours by rain. And he goes out there and make short work of the Los Angeles Dodgers and rain last night in Cleveland. I don't know if rain has anything to do with any of this, but rain last night in Cleveland. And Miley throws the no hitter. Now they could just get a you hideous war is going there might be something to it. Reds or 15 and 15. They play the Indians again tonight and you can hear it here. First Pitch at 6 10 inside. Pitch it 5 10 right here on the home of your Cincinnati Reds. 700 wlw. 31 home run. If that baby goodbye, he'll be clubbing it in Cleveland.

For the new york times and the author of to find books. Billy martin and the heisman. A former syndicated columnist. Bill is also a ten time winner. The ap sports editors writing award and his latest book is an interesting. Look at an interesting time. In new york yankee history it's called jumps to champs how the worst team in yankees history led to the nineties dynasty bill first of all given the yankees historical and overall success. It's kind of hard to imagine them as jumps tell us about that chump period. That makes us different. Is it You know who knows somebody. Yankee books have been written usually about success this. This is a book about yankee. Failure or at least half. The book is about yankee failure and And that's sort of intrigue me. I mean the the premise was. I think that you know a lot of people Especially if you're on your maybe forty five years old Have don't even remember this period when the yankees were the worst team in baseball. They were they were they. Were just the worst. Statistically written laughingstock. They everything they did went wrong. I mean they had a pitcher throwing no hitter. Still the game. You know and eighty eight inning complete game. No hitter lose the game which had never happened in the history of baseball before at that point and You know george. Steinbrenner was exiled from baseball at that. Point suspended indefinitely for consorting with a gambler and You know The team was bad. The minor league system was Benefit of any talent They really looked like what it really looked. Like this. This period is you know. Nineteen ninety ninety two ninety three It really looked like the great century of yankee baseball where they had been. You know the most dominant team in baseball. And if not all of american sports in that century was gonna come to you know a crumbling in and this was. This was going to be for this empire. It really didn't look like they were going to get out of it but as it turns out From the from the ashes roses phoenix than that actually was a period when they were drafting derrick jeeter and signing bernie williams when he was the eligibility was right away soon. Seventeen years old and Signing horgavitt asada for two thousand dollars signing mariana rivera for about that. Same amount of money and Actually you know they were building this thing. Just nobody saw it at the time. It's interesting to take a look at the historical record of the yankees. They've won twenty seven world championships. Forty american league pennants. They have twenty eight members in the hall of fame. So after the seventies the late seventies when they went to the world series and won there what happened between that time to the early nineties. That got them in the position that you'd wrote about it was really the nineteen eighties At the funniest It's kind of a. It's an unusual decade for them George steinbrenner news to say That we were the most successful team in the nineteen eighties. We just didn't win very much. Which was actually. George could be right and wrong at the same time very often and he was in in that sense statistically they had the best winning percentage of any team in major league baseball in the nineteen eighties but the yankees never went to the world series in the nineteen eighties Other than nineteen eighty-one. When i went to boot series nineteen eighty-one but other than nineteen eighty-one they didn't return to the playoffs and so This was you know there was no wildcard baseball. Then so they had these decent teams but not good enough to really break through There was a lot of turmoil This is when George steinbrenner kinda got over active. You know he'd been very active in late seventy s and had met with success. We thought okay a little bit of meddling A good and lead to some things maybe metal even more when things aren't working and i'll make it better and instead he just kind of made it worse and he traded away all his prospects You're you're trying to you know. Get good right then. And it ruined the future for the franchise so there they'd always seems like eight eighty seven eighty nine games but again with no wildcard baseball. They didn't get in eventually. This kind of management style in addition to wearing out of people in the players and the managers and constantly hiring firing managers general managers pitching coaches. It sort of messed up things up so badly that by and they said by nineteen ninety ninety one were the worst teams in baseball and it almost kind of took george steinbrenner's exiling suspension that he received To let a reset button kind of happened. That is indeed. what happened. yeah. I always had that same feeling as well. Bill that his meddling and involvement hands on approach created instability. And i guess even fear in some of the people in the organization at that time whether anything that they would do that they thought would be good would be looked upon in a particular manner and after a while that really causes a real panic in an organization doesn't yes that's true and there was also a basic dysfunction because the the plan would change Often on the whims of what was going on in baseball. You know a couple. The yankees had a formula yankee stadium stadium man and it was left handed power hitting you know good usually lefthanded pitching and They weren't really speed team. Let's say they had some but not you know but then a couple of teams in the early eighties were winning with speed. And all of a sudden as george tried to remake the whole roster to be speed guys you know and that didn't fit their they're sort of mo didn't fit their stadium He would tend to sign a lot of big free agents but they were not necessarily the wisest choices that often Built on offense and not very much on defense you know. They had some of those lineups eighties. Ricky henderson was the leadoff hitter. Willie randolph is. The second was pretty player don mattingly. He was playing like a hall of famer in the nineteen eighties. Third dave winfield was fourth. I mean some of those teams had you know. So negro was on that team so ricky and dave i mean that's and that's off those are all hall of famers but they didn't have enough pitching they didn't have enough consistency of what the the approach was and so overall i. It was a dysfunctional way of going about it. Is it fair to say the general manager. Gene michael was the savior of the organization. Started.

"george steinbrenner" Discussed on Westward
"So arbok has brown call Harrison and offers him the ice capades for a week if they pass on Russell. And with their top pick, the Rochester rose would draft a player by the name of shugo green. Out of duquesne, the Celtics then scooped up Russell and is a cherry on top, they also get Casey Jones in the second round. In one singular draft, red hour backs Celtics would acquire three future Hall of Famers, creating a dynasty, the likes of which the NBA would never see. Including 8 consecutive NBA championships. The first of which would be against the Minneapolis Lakers, and their rookie phenom. Elgin Baylor. And then one player on a particular team that was just we could not do very much with it. And that was entirely Russell Russell. Russell was also just unbelievable because Russell was the best defensive player you ever find. I mean, very difficult, but in the summer of 1960, Elgin Baylor and the Lakers would add a player who would help turn that ten years of hell pain into a furious decade long struggle that would not only rest basketball supremacy from the east coast stronghold of the Boston Celtics, but would sow the seeds of a bitter coastal rivalry that still exists today. The 1960 NBA draft was arguably the richest draft in league history. Four Hall of Famers in the first ten picks. And one of those picks was a lanky sharpshooter from the sticks of West Virginia. When I first came into lady, I wasn't even sure I was good enough to play, but, you know, I could run and jump like crazy. I had a very big vertical and that's before they even started to pay attention to stuff like that. And then extremely long arms and it was always really funny to me that they would put that I was 6 feet two and when I actually over 6 four and with a 40 inch sleeve length it makes you a lot bigger and you know if the physical part of it caught up with a mental part of it and that was the most difficult transition for me, the mental part of it had to feel confidence and the confidence to God were you got from playing against these people. West would be the Lakers first pick in Los Angeles. And the number two overall behind Cincinnati's Oscar Robertson. But signing the all American from West Virginia would prove difficult. As another Ohio area team, the ADL's Cleveland pipers, also had their eyes on west. The pipers were owned by a brash and brilliant young businessman, who was educated at MIT, and entered the world of sports franchises against his father's wishes. His name was George Steinbrenner. My dad had a fight trying to get Jerry West. And Steinbrenner was offering Jerry a chance to play at almost the same level as he would play in the NBA and he didn't have a pot to piss in as you would expect from a guy who just gets out of West Virginia in that era. So George wanted to see me and I visited with him at that point in time, I think all young kids, if you're any good, in particularly if you had higher aspiration, when somebody talking about something had been around for a while, but not forever, the NBA. That was always kind of a dream of mine because I'd watched some of the great great players at played in Ed era, and also I felt that if I were going to do something, the most important thing to be the most competitive person I could be was to play against better players. Not only did Steinbrenner offer west NBA money. He also offered him something most NBA players of that era needed during the off season. A job. He was really pressing me pretty hard. About doing this. His father was in the shipbuilding business and I'm going to be an insurance salesman. Again, coming from West Virginia, you know, I can't imagine me selling in a piece of candy, much less than insurance pollen to someone. As Steinbrenner pushed Jerry West, Laker owner bob short pulled, even hiring his former college coach, Fred shouse, to take over the team. But ultimately, it was west's drive. That made the decision. The money had nothing to do with it. I just wanted to play against it. What I felt was the best competition, and obviously I think I made the right decision. The kid who grew up in the foothills of the Allegheny mountains, not far from places with names like gunstock knob, was now moving to Los Angeles. The home of Beverly Hills, and Hollywood. You know, I hadn't traveled hardly any at all when I was a kid. I would say we had no means of transportation. So I was kind of shut in in terms of expanding the knowledge I had about other cities and the way that people conducted themselves and other cities you compared to very, really rule, small place that I grew up in. And it was a complete learning experience. First time I came out here and I was kind of all struck. I never forget we stayed at the old ambassador to hotel, and Wilshire boulevard, and that's where Robert Kennedy got killed. I was 20 one. They took us to the nightclub, the coconut grove, the nightclub, these old hillbillies

"All right before this pandemic hit us. I used to love to go to places like bird land 54 below. All these great cabaret venues to see all my friends who were singing there, and, of course, that's all shut down, and God knows when it's going to reopen, but one of my favorite performance and a good friend of mine headless window I saw her at 54 below. I think, Haley, I saw you at Birdland as well, and it's a pleasure to welcome to the program. Hayley Swindle. Great great Broadway in cabaret performer and she's now doing well. Are you doing the bird Land live? Are you actually at Birdland Hayley, and it's going to be broadcast on YouTube, Facebook so we can see it. Hi, Michael. How are you? Good to see you. Good to talk to you. I am doing a bird land show that was actually streamed and filmed with three cameras and no audience, specifically four streaming. So I went in, and it was a very interesting experience. It's as we're all trying to figure out like how to navigate this world that we're in. We went. It's Ah, it's called Bird Land. Um But Lien on demand Bird land Radio Free bird land. That's a serious that they're doing for Broadway performers, and I went in, and it was just me and my Panis from Chicago on Broadway and three cameras, and they filmed it specifically. Or streaming, So it's been on streaming on Broadway world produced by Broadway world and been on there for the last 10 days, and we'll be on there for another 20 days, so it was specifically filmed for streaming. So, Haley, What's it like? Though being in a cabaret? I mean, my idea of a cabaret is a lot of people sitting around drinking. You hear the applause? You hear the laughter? What's it like to perform in front of No. One? Oh my gosh, It's the strangest thing. It takes such an adjustment, right? No matter how much they tell you, it's like there's not not going to be an audience. You're sitting there you're finishing, Remember A and then silence, Silence! Silence, But I look at the camera and I just kind of imagine that everyone I love and everyone that I care about is is behind that camera, right and I did this show as a tribute to two New York City is called to New York with love, and it's really for the city that I've fallen in love with, and the people in it that I love, and it actually is a benefit for the actors fund. So it was a really important thing for me to do, and it's and it's been doing really well on raising a lot of money, so it wasn't kept me got that kept me going. It was a very interesting experience. I imagine what like Judy Garland used to feel kind of a guest in the studio when you would go and film a television special. I mean, I guess a lot of time she had live audiences, but sometimes she didn't No, it was it was a totally different experience. But you know, we're all learning, right? How? How to how to live in this this strange time. We're on with Hayley Swindle Broadway performer. She got a great wealth. You're benefiting the actors from which is a great charity here, And also, I was. I'm great, and I was so excited to see your resume because you are George Steinbrenner's granddaughter. And, uh, I love that. I love the guy and what a character. And even when I criticized him, he'd still take my phone calls he had. I'm sure you know he had his house rigged in Tampa to pick up the New York TV stations. This is long before satellites were big so he would watch what I'd have to say. And he, you know, he fume and then steam would come out of his ears. But he was great when I interviewed him, and I was wondering what your experiences were with granddad growing up. Oh, gosh. He was the best. He was the best grandfather you could ever ask for. I mean, you know, you hear all these stories of him being you know the boss or whatever, but he really was a teddy burke with us. I mean, he was at everything that we ever did. He was the most supportive person in the world. He always called me Broadway. Because from the time I was young, all I ever did. I think I drove my family nuts because everyone was watching sports game sports games and I was singing Don't cry for me, Argentina kind of in the background like real true s o, you know, but he was always so loving about it. He actually the last thing you ever said to me was I love you Broadway. You gonna get there and you know, a year after he had the way. Made it on Broadway. And he, uh he was always just so supportive. I mean, if we were at example, I had knee surgery one morning and I had to get there at 6 A.m., and he's been He was waiting at the hospital from 4 A.m. for me, you know, So that was just the kind of person that he was, and he taught me a lot. You know, he had this side of him as well. That was always like One thing that sticks with me is like if you do something nice for someone and more than two people know about it, then you didn't do it for the right reason. It was great. Hey, did things and not honestly all the time that people knew nothing about? You're absolutely right. And so that side of him is really stuck with me. I am a lot like him in a lot of ways. I mean, I am definitely I rely on instinct. I have that definitely that fire or temper whatever you wanna call it sometimes, but But I also you know, can realize when I when I have made a mistake and and act on that as well, So there are there are parts of me that are are like him, and I am grateful that I had him as a role model. I'm the oldest granddaughter, oldest grandchild, So I spent a lot of my life actually, with my with my grand parents growing up in Florida. And I'm very grateful to them. They helped kind of shaped who I am, and we're very supportive of me and my my singing career. All right. Tell you You've got to come back to talk more about your career. And your grandfather. I mean, great stories. Hayley, tell us where can we see your Birdland performance again? It's on Broadway world streaming, so it's on rolly world dot com Events page and you can check it out..

Straw If you're a die hard New York met fan You love Strawberry from those mid eighties teams team that beat the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series in 86. Then, of course, he went on to become a great New York Yankee. And when two more World Series for George Steinbrenner and the Yanks, Darryl has put his life together Really done an amazing job after a very rocky time, very public rocky time like me. His new book is out, and it's a very, very good book. It's really an inspirational read of Have you ever think that you can't get past it? Well, you're wrong. It's titled Turn your Season around How God transforms transforms your life and what that said Here. He is one of the great New York Mets and Yankees of all time and a burning and said favor the great number. 18 Darryl Strawberry. Hi, Donald. Hey, Bernie and said Good morning. How you guys doing that good, bro. Thank you. Always nice to talk to you. Straw. You know you are in studio with us. But the old address about two years ago and before you get to the book and God in his role in all of our lives. You made a very, very controversial statement that got me and Bernie into the New York Post, which we appreciate, and that is it, you said you said because of George Steinbrenner and the way the Yankees treat their alumni. The Mets don't do the same, he said. You're a Yankee and not a New York met. Initially, I was very angry, Darryl. But if that's your choice, that's your choice. Now, with years later, you still stand by that. Well, I'm a New Yorker, You know? I mean, I know the match are moving in a different direction. They got a new ownership and, you know, thinking, gentlemen, just running a ball club just seemed to be, um I met fan, you know? And you like to hear that the history of the match is great. I guess when you separate yourself from the history of what the Mets were, because we'd 86 minutes on. That really wasn't good and didn't sit well with a lot of guys so Kind of just remove myself from that organization at the time, you know, with the ownership and you know I have nothing bad to say about the past on the ship. Let's get on this move on forward what you do and see what happens. You know, I like to see the organization get back in the place where they're winning organization that consistent Every year, and that's really important for fans more than anything in Queens. What happened last week reminded me when you were young player with the Mets coming up in. They started to put talent around you, Darryl because you were the future of the organization, and they acquired Keith Hernandez from ST Louis. They acquired Gary Carter for Montreal. And I saw some of that in the acquisition of Francisco Indoor last week. It was like those Eighties, met teams that have a young talent, the very solid pitching and now a guy that may be on his way to the Hall of Fame. Yeah, that's really that's really good. That's what you have to do it. You have to make sure big trades and you have to develop your farm system. Get back to develop your foreign system in the younger players and that they'll come up and learn how to flatter a big lead levels to go with guys. You know that have multi talented You know, you need just a multi talented players. You know what I could do a little bit of everything Run. The bases will go first to third still basis. I mean those things all important in your line up when you look in our lineup. Do you think you talked of our kissing and Gary coming over, But you looked at guys like linear Wally. They were set the table for us and you be chomping at the bit When you see those runners on base like that when you're driving in runs in your middle of the order. No doubt that Darryl Strawberry baseball great and all around good guy. His new book is called. Turn your Season around How God transforms your life. Turn your season around How God transforms your life. So, Darryl You really, really get into God and how he did you no effect that you have tough upbringing. And of course, we're familiar with that. Your history with drug abuse and drinking and all that stuff. Is it still painful to talk about all your struggles? No, it's very easy to talk about it because You know I have victory over it. And when you get picture over things you move forward. You don't look back. It's easy to go back and really today what you're trying to say to people to show them. You know that your life can be transformed. You don't have to be the same person, you know. Most important thing was having my mother in my life for a very long time. And raising me right was no reason for me to go wrong. Excuse me go wrong, but she raised me the right way. But I just Made a choice to live that he's in life and womanizing, alcoholic drug addict center and then they have my wife, Tracy, come into my life and lead me back into church and lead me back to the Lord and you know I'm no better than anybody else. You know, just like the Bible says we all fall short. I mean, I I decided that I didn't want to live like that. No more. I decided, guys. They want to be a hypocrite no more and didn't want to straddle the fish. You know, saying saying I'm following God, but I'm still living for these worldly things.
